Episode #247 crew: Brandon Lee Gowton, John Barchard, James Seltzer

Show write-up by James Seltzer:

- The fellas offer their early observations from Training Camp. Who has caught their eye, what storylines they could see developing, and more.

- One name that's been at the forefront of early camp discussion is Donnel Pumphrey. Why has the little guy been so bandied about? Listen in to find out.

- Isaac "Ike" Seamulo is named the starting left guard by Frank Reich. The guys offer their takes on how the o-line is shaping up, the importance of depth there, and how good the line can be if players stay healthy.

- Speaking of guards, Allen Barbre spoke to a Denver radio station about being jettisoned from Philly. What he had to say might surprise you.

- The guys discuss the Jordan Matthews situation, and whether they believe Matthews has any future in Philadelphia past this season. Spoiler alert: Don't get too attached to JMatt.

- Patrick Robinson ran with the ones. Is there any chance he's a viable option at cornerback for this team? And regardless, should the Eagles still be looking to upgrade the position before the season starts? The BGN crew answers these burning questions for your listening pleasure.

- Jordan Hicks addressed his injury with the media. Subsequently, the fellas address Hicks' address.

- There has been a lot of hype so far about Tim (Timmy?) Jernigan -- most notably from his new defensive coordinator. But is the hype warranted? And will he be here long term if he lives up to said hype? John, James, and BLG offer their thoughts on this and a whole lot more.
